The ancient-beyond-ancient words spoken by the God Unam to his priests set the social castes into place, promoting order in the wild and barbaric lands of Nabdha. The work is still considered the holiest of holies among the Unamians and the words of Unam still provide guidance for the modern castes of Greater Aryavata. This translation into the common tongue by an unknown translator lacks beauty, but meaning is well-conveyed.

This epic poem of over 20,000 lines tells the entire history of the world according to the extinct Juaka peoples of Western Javalarkandh. Within it the origin of the world as an iron nugget, the forging by the God Feaquitawatala into the world as we know it, and the decoration of the world with all the green things by his wife, the divine Komalitalo, is eloquently recited. The work finishes with the tears of Dread Rowipikalo’s at Feaquitawtala’s murder of her husband creating the seas of the world, thus making them impassible. This extremely rare text is in the Juaka language.
